The data was extracted from Web of Science (WOS) electronic database. This broad, multidisciplinary online database gives users access to a number of citation databases (e.g. Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). This database is commonly preferred in bibliometric studies as it only incorporates the publications with the highest standards and adheres to the most relevant publications with useful metadata.

Search criteria can significantly affect the results of the study. Initially, academic publications on the research topic from 2003 to 2022 were retrieved from WOS on 5th of April, 2023. In order to reach as many articles as possible, search terms "corporate governance" in abstracts AND “bank” OR “banking” among the authors keywords were entered, yielding initially 499 publications and further refined to the ones in English with 484 publications. The documents were then filtered by categories including “Business Finance”, “Business”, “Economy” and “Management” resulting in 358 documents. Proceedings papers, book chapters and early access documents apart from the articles were also included in the refined sample.
